November 17th:  Nashuva’s 15th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon
at Hope Street- Downtown Los Angeles

Sunday, November 17, 2019 from 11:00 am to 1:30 pm


Please join us this year to celebrate Nashuva’s 15th Annual Thanksgiving Luncheon with Pico-Union Family Preservation Center/Hope Street, which offers services to low income, at-risk families.  Our celebration consists of a Thanksgiving luncheon, Arts & Crafts for the children and Nashuva Mitzvah bags for the Hope Street families filled with food, staples and a little something for the kids.  We need food for the banquet in large quantities and lots of necessities for our Mitzvah Bags.

Our Hope Street Families often do not know where their next meal will be coming from. Every year, the Nashuva community brings Thanksgiving, arts & crafts, and gifts to this downtown LA community.  How can you help? We’re so glad you asked!

Volunteer

Opportunities to Volunteer include collecting items for the event, set up/clean up, preparing the gift bags, leading arts & crafts for the kids, preparing and serving food at the luncheon.  Students can use their volunteer hours for school community service reporting!
